Yeah, I am totally crying and for various reasons right now! First of all, Nogibingo! is o-v-e-r Over! How am I going to spend my Friday nights form now on? Seriously this has been the most enjoyable and looked forward to 48/46 show for me this season and now it’s tots over! So downs right now!
And as if that fact alone wasn’t enough, they go and make the last episode such a FEEL-inducing roller coaster! Seriously, how am I supposed to hold all those FEELS in when the bring out secret weapons like these letters of apology from member to member! How?!
I couldn’t! My throat and my chest are both hurting pretty bad right now! I am such a mess that I could only get the energy to translate ( very roughly) just Reika’s letter to Yumi! I couldn’t hold it in anymore., My eyes could see a thing! I was typo-ing every three characters so I gave up! So forgive me but I only found time to translate Reika’s letter only.
So anyway this week the theme was that members who had something really weighty to apologise for to another got to write in down in letter form and then read them in front of the intended. Naturally Captain went first. And naturally still, the receiver was none other than Wakatsuki-sama. I speak for everyone when I say that no one was surprised by that, huh? Anyway since I translated this, no need to talk about it. Read it and find out if interested…
Oh God, here we go again! Any way, the translation…
When I first met you I knew right away that you and I would get along.
How could I possibly survive another on of these dear Readers…And so this is all I could do. But to be truthful, my Japanese suddenly spiked up during Reika’s letter but then I was back to a n00b after that! I blame the FEELS!
Then there was MaiMai and MisaMisa! I don’t know about anyone else who watched this but to me, these two really hit in the spot! If Reika’s letter was a headshot, this was straight through the soul! There was something about them that just hit me really hard! By this time my Japanese had left me, well truthfully most of my senses had left me during MisaMisa’s letter, so I didn’t understand much of what was said but the feelings, that I understood clearly!
And can I just come out and confess that to me, when I think of a close to perfect woman, MaiMai is first in my book. That’s right, not my Goddess but MaiMai! There is something strangely perfect about that girl I swear! What is it?!
Any way, I am hoping a kind soul translates this and Sayuringo’s letters because I really want to know what was said. If my heart was compelled to cry for them, there is got to have been a good reason! But not all words flew over my messy head! I caught what MisaMisa said about how she saw the light when she met MaiMai. And by seeing the light of course I mean that she started liking girls thanks to MaiMai!
MaiMai turned MisaMisa GAY!
And let’s not forget that last hug! I don’t think MisaMisa was planning to let go any time soon. Too bad they were on TV! Me thinks there was some great sex that night!
Then there was the last letter from Sayuri to…Ikoma? Yeah, I was with Ikoma-kun on this one! Certainly wasn’t expecting her! But there had to be something we aren’t aware of, right? And one of those things is the fact that these two are actually close thanks to their Otaku status and the fact that they have actually fought before!
And even though other members also thought differently about Ikoma’s apparently straight-forward acceptance of her Team B concurrence, it was Sayuri who had to guts to voice her thoughts to Ikoma. Well, Hocchan did post about it on her blog as well but it where as she was more angry at management, Sayuri and some other thought that Ikoma did not love Nogizaka that much or was only looking after her own progression (if I understood her right) which made her real angry. But fear not, the waters should be cleared by now.
Also guys, they sang my favourite NGZ46 song for their turn – Kimi no na wa kibou! My eyes were simply melting! How appropriate that choice was! The members too were probably greatly affected by that choice. If they had doubts and cloudy feelings still, they were discarded!
And speaking of Sayuringo, am i the only one who really, really loves her Kurokami?! I haven’t stopped staring at her ever since she went Black since an episode or so ago. I really don’t understand it when they die their hair! For some reason it feels to me like tainting! This is why I am no so hot on Yukirin and her died hair lately! Three of my Oshi now have died hair including Rena and Maachun which leaves only Sakura-tan. I really hope they go back to Black! I can’t help thinking that they are somehow tainting themselves when they do that. Oh well…like strength in numbers, I felt less horrible when Rena too died her hair and we all know Rena is the purest as hey come!
I was hoping for some Ikomiona action too but alas! Well at least I got to see them sit together for once even if it was the final episode. And I am still shocked by Hocchan’s age. I don’t know what I thought she was much younger than Ikoma-kun! Every time I am reminded that she is 17 my mind resets the shock factor for some reason.
And can I just say how cute that Kiichan really is! Seriously, that level of adorableness is off the human scale! I totally have no questions as to why she was the one picked for this single from the 2nd gen next to Hocchan!
Any who, I am really going to miss Nogibingo! Time to find another show that will take over and my my weekends more interesting like this show was doing!
